How Inflammation Affects Your Body

Bottom Line:

While the inflammatory process is extremely complex, the solutions aren’t.

Reducing pain and inflammation naturally is simple with the right strategy.

Maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly are all ways that have been shown to effectively reduce pain and inflammation naturally.

Why it Matters:

Your diet and daily exercise routine play a huge role in managing chronic inflammation because each influences your weight and sleep patterns.

Foods high in antioxidants (like berries, turmeric, green vegetables) can lower your overall inflammation and provide you with more energy. Daily exercise can help protect you against conditions such as heart disease and obesity, which have both been linked to chronic inflammation.


Did you know:

  • Antioxidants known as polyphenols can lower inflammation.

  • Even 20 minutes of daily exercise can have an anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Proper sleep patterns encourage recovery and can lower stress and inflammation levels.


Next Steps:

Reducing pain and inflammation naturally starts with your ability to move your body and exercise daily.
